  • While we hope you'll enjoy fare from our food trucks, you are welcome to bring your own food and non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Port-a-johns are the only restroom facility available at the event area.
  • Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome. The Dog Park is nearby the event area, too!

Dorothea Dix Park continues to strive to be accessible and welcoming for visitors, including those with disabilities. Currently, portions of Dorothea Dix Park, including some areas where programs and events occur, have uneven surfaces and are not fully accessible. Accessibility is a primary focus for early park improvements and all future planning and development.

Parking: Accessible parking spaces are available in all lots.

Restrooms: Indoor accessible restrooms are available in the newly renovated Chapel during visitor hours.  Accessible port-a-johns are located at the Big Field and Flowers Field.

Programs and events: Raleigh Parks Inclusion Services works with community members to support participation. To request a program modification based on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), please complete and submit the Accommodation Request Form or contact Inclusion Services staff at 919-996-2147 or
